August is the last month of summer, which means you’re probably looking forward to bigger releases like Fantastic Four — but don’t let Ricki and the Flash escape your notice. The new film from director Jonathan Demme and Oscar-winning screenwriter Diablo Cody features Meryl Streep in the role of a rock goddess who left her family behind to pursue her dreams. As seen in the new clip above, yes, Queen Meryl does indeed really sing and play the guitar.

It must be difficult to be mad at your absentee mom when she rocks this hard — the new trailer for Ricki and the Flash has arrived, in which acting icon Meryl Streep plays a rock icon fumbling her way through making amends with the family she once left behind. Adding a little realism is Mamie Gummer, Streep's real-life daughter who plays her fictional daughter in the film, which totally won't make you cry at all.

After a few months of teaser images, the wait is finally over. You can watch Meryl Streep in action as a rock goddess in the first trailer for Ricki and the Flash, the new film from screenwriter Diablo Cody and director Jonathan Demme. Not long ago, we learned that Streep had seriously committed herself to learning to play the guitar (of course she did — she’s Meryl F—ing Streep) for the film, and it seems that her hard work paid off.

Meryl Streep is a Queen. That’s just science fact. The immensely talented actress appears next as a rock star (oh, yes) in Ricki and the Flash, from writer Diablo Cody and director Jonathan Demme. The titular role of Ricki requires singing and guitar-playing, and you know Queen Meryl would not be content letting a stand-in handle all the work. In addition to recording 12 cover songs for the new film, Streep was so committed to the project that she spent six months honing her guitar skills and wound up literally bleeding for her art. That’s just how Meryl Streep rolls.

Plans for a Barbie movie were first announced last year to much confusion/fascination/morbid curiosity. But like LEGO, the world of Barbie is pretty vast and offers almost infinite possibilities—she’s had so many careers, for one thing. The live-action Barbie film hasn’t offered any news since the initial announcement, but today brings word that Academy Award-winning screenwriter Diablo Cody has been hired to give the script the ol’ rewrite treatment. Honest to blog.

Granted, it's been years since anyone had occasion to parody the off kilter snappy dialogue of indie pregnancy comedy 'Juno,' but Diablo Cody's influence has continued to be felt in films like 'Young Adult' and even the dearly departed TV series 'United States of Tara.' That influence will soon be front and center once more, now that the former stripper-turned writer has begun developing 'Alex + Amy' over at ABC, but what's it all about?
